Courts

Civil Filings: The public still has access to the Clerk's office; however, we are asking people to file their documents using the iCourt E-Filing System or you can access all civil filing forms through the Idaho Court Assistance website, as well as Guide & File for Civil Protection Orders, Minor Guardianships or Small Claims at  https://courtselfhelp.idaho.gov/.   Alternatively, all self-represented litigants may place their filings in the drop box located in the courthouse lobby or email their filings to clerks@bonnercountyid.gov.  If you are emailing filings, please make sure to include a good telephone number on your documents so we may contact you for any required payment.

Civil Protection Orders:  Civil Protection Order forms can now be filed in any Idaho court online, via the  Guide & File Tool, which asks a series of questions to gather necessary information to complete and file court forms remotely.  Those seeking additional details on court protective orders, and who has eligibility to file them, can visit the Idaho Legal Aid Services webpage.

Fine Payments: All fine payments may be paid by either calling the Clerk's office at 208-265-1432, dropping your payment in the drop box in the lobby of the courthouse (envelopes provided to secure your payment) or by paying online on the iCourt Portal.

Thank you for your patience.
